Exceptional 10.0
I stayed on a private room for just one night. It was a bit cheaper than the cheapest hotel, and it was clean, nice and quiet inside. My room got noise from the street, but I was still able to sleep well because I was tired. If you have light sleep, maybe call them to see if there are other rooms that don't have the window facing the street.

Good located hostel with great staff
The hostel is in the center of the city, close to different touristic attractions and public transportation system. Rooms are in good condition but blankets are old and worm out, and really noise, however ear plug are available for free.
